Opera Live at Home was recently founded by Helen to provide a much needed performance platform for both UK-based opera singers and accomapnists as well as bringing live music to you. What makes us unique is the opportunity to meet the artists afterwards, something you would never normally experience in the opera house or concert hall.
If you would like to become a Patron of Opera Live at Home, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
